From the very beginning of a child's life, effective listening includes becoming aware, focusing, selecting cues from the environment, and filtering out distractions. And in the preschool years, children are ready to learn a lot more about becoming good listeners. Yet very few teachers have had specific preparation for actually teaching children how to listen. Learning to Listen, Listening to Learn provides clear, research-based guidance to help teachers set young children's listening behaviors on the right path, as well as reassess their own listening skills.
